Governing Regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health conditions of workers through the use of regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. OSHA regulations are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1910 covers general industry regulations, while 1926 is designated for construction industry standards.

Section 5(a)(1) of the OSH Act, often referred to as the General Duty Clause, requires employers to "furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees." Section 5(a)(2) requires employers to "comply with occupational safety and health standards promulgated under this Act."

This online certification course meets the training requirements set forth by OSHA for outdoor biological hazards.

Employers are responsible for training new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to outdoor dangers such as physical, chemical, ergonomic, and biological hazards.

To ensure compliance with the General Duty Clause, safety training must be conducted periodically and as-needed to ensure the outdoor work environment is free from recognized hazards. This online training course meets these training requirements.
